I've stopped my photo-story updates of events from end of December and I really dunno when I could start updating again. December, January, February and now March... It keeps snowballing.
Meanwhile, here are some wedding prep updates which some of you were asking for...
What lies inside???
Roman inspired wedding bands designed by Ling.
Mine is white diamonds set in rose gold while his is black diamonds. His is custom-made and he would be the only one in the world with this unique design as for now.
I cannot help but keep opening the box and taking peeps of the rings every now and then.
My shoe loots from Anna Nucci 2 weeks ago...
I can't capture the colour well but it's rose gold.
These are not my bridal shoes. I bought them coz that was the first time I come across shoes in rose gold and at only $20+, I would be a fool not to buy them. Certainly don't look its price.
These are my bridal shoes.
I simply love the rows of blings which are hand-sewn. Can bring it back to fix if any of the crystal drops as there is a life-time warranty. It's the most comfy 4.5-inch (or is it 5?) ever! I'm really elated to get my bridal shoes at slightly less than $100 as before that, I was prepared to pay a few hundreds for a good, comfy pair.
I don't want to trip and fall on my wedding day, you know?
kh and I are in a dilemma. Who should we choose for our AD wedding photographer?
Charles or Gideon?
Both photo styles are almost the same. Both packages are almost the same.
Charles is a personal friend of 2 good friends who don't know each other. Both strongly recommended him. I love his photo story projects. Even though he doesn't specialise in wedding photog, his wedding portfolio convinced us that he would make a good choice.
Charles would be asking another photographer along to capture more candid shots at more angles. Both kh and I feel that this is a good arrangement as we would definitely not miss capturing any precious moments. The additional photographer may take posed shots every now and then while Charles continues his photo journalism. Also, we would have one photog outside with the groom and 兄弟 with another photog inside the house with the 姐妹 during gatecrashing. There would sure be lots of fun shots!
Charles, being recommended by personal friends would of course be more flexible. He's such a great guy. We really enjoyed talking to him.
Gideon works alone but assures us that he never fails to capture all the fleeting moments. He would also take posed shots whenever people require him to. Gideon isn't a friend and so have to maintain a professional distance. However, he is still affable and cute. AND... he's so damn shuai! I tell you ah. I refused to show kh any photos of him on his blog or on Facebook coz I don't think he look as good in those photos as compared to in real life. I wanted kh to see the real him.
After we stepped outta Gideon's studio, I asked kh, "So, how do you find Gideon?"
Kh's unexpected reply was, "Woa... he damn shuai leh. I can't stop looking at him."
Kh seldom say people shuai wan. So I told kh to be his gay buddy. Wahahahaha...
Gideon is not drop dead gorgeous but there is this element in him that draws people to him. The tanned tanned cute cute kind. Plus the fact that he's very friendly. I kept gushing over how cute he is tt kh buay tahan me and jokingly said, "Ok la ok la... You go and marry him la."
Hahaha... Gush over cuteness cannot meh?
BTW, it's weird that Gideon knows of Charles and Charles doesn't know of Gideon. Gideon is pretty well-known. I think Charles has retreated so much from the wedding field that he doesn't even need to know his competitors.
[Edited to add: Charles went to find out who Gideon is and realised he knew of him but not by name. Charles also told us we would be in good hands if we choose Gideon. Ha.. so humble.]
Since style and pricing almost the same, should we choose friendly Charles or cute cute Gideon?
